The first monograph of Chicago-based Theaster Gates, one of the most exciting and highly regarded contemporary artists at work today. Celebrated for bridging the gap between art and life, Gates’ work encourages political, social and spatial change, and reaches beyond a traditional art audience. His output includes sculpture, installation, performance, architecture and urban interventions, and has been exhibited and critically acclaimed in important exhibitions including Documenta Kassel and the Venice Biennale. This is the first time all his significant projects are collected and examined together.
